I now have 3 balls and 2 DVD’s but I still need more info.
My problem is that I sit at a desk and keyboard or sew most of my waking hours. This has led to hunched shoulders and forward head ( neck and shoulder strain and pain).
Your ball under the elbow and Neck help with the tension but I need to know how long and how often I should do this.
Also, are there any other positions I should do to help correct this?
Your video seems to need more information. Also the web site doesn’t explain enough about what each covers so I seem to have the same information covered in two different DVD’s. I have the “Stop the Clock” and “The Ball Therapy Kit”
Have you tried raising the arms up into the air? This is great when done with the breathing sections and then letting the arms hang differently in between movements. Most of us are in these hunched over positions all day and this is a great antidote. When we are hunched over we are cutting or bending our body right where the diaphragm is. It makes it very difficult then to breathe. Our breathing gets weak and then the muscle tension gets worse. This movement, which I believe is in a few places in the materials you have, lifts the ribs off the diaphragm. It is also great for the shape of your waistline. Not that that is most important but it is a motivator as well to look good.
As far as getting more. I need you to get the feeling of change with one movement. I can give you a hundred. It is the way in which we do movement that creates the change. A person must get the experience of giving into the weight whether on the ball or hanging forward. Once that happens you can feel the adjustments. Your body begins to move differently and you can feel a change in your body from the habitual holding. It is the holding in one position that gives us the pain and and increases the aching.
One movement when done well changes the whole body. If I give you many movements done similar to the way you hold your posture right now you may feel you have more to do but you will get less results. Once you experience that feeling of release your whole body will begin to respond. When you get better at it you can get postive responses all day from simple movements done well.
Most of us are holding our muscles and as a result holding our breath. It becomes a vicious cycle. Exhale!
I hope this helps
